In term 4, we will be using the stories,The Queen's Hat, All Aboard the London Bus, A Walk in London and Toby and the Great Fire of London.

By sharing these Bright Lights, Big City themed stories the children will develop their skills in reading and writing poetry, postcards, instructions and setting descriptions.


To support and develop our written work, our marking gnome will help us to remember to...

  • begin our sentences with a capital letter
  • finish with a full stop
  • write on the lines
  • leave gaps between our words
  • use curly cursive school handwriting

How can you help at home? Encourage your child to give full explanations when answering questions. Extend their vocabulary by using topic words such as landmark, sightseeing, monarch and Queen Elizabeth II.
